Q: Why is the boarder expected to pack his belongings during the mid-year
and year-end school holidays?
ACS Oldham Hall conducts a spring cleaning for the entire hall during the mid-year and year-end school holidays. This regime is necessary to rid off the dust and dirt found in the boarders' rooms like the wardrobes, study desks, under the beds, ceiling fans, windows and other unreachable areas which are done by the professionals.
The boarder is expected to pack all his belongings prior to his departure from ACS Oldham Hall to his home country during these major school vacations as clearing of their belongings will ensure a thorough and expeditious process done by the cleaners. At the same time, the boarders' rooms are rented out for holiday camps and retreats during this period and to avoid any loss of valuables, every boarder must clear his room before he is allowed to check-out.
Q: Where can the boarder store his belonging after he has packed them?
Storage space and standard size card boxes (chargeable) are available for the boarder to pack and store his belonging. Each boarder is entitled to three storage spaces on a complimentary basis and a rate will be charged for the 4th storage space onwards. Boarders can sell their used card boxes to the office after use.
One luggage is equivalent to two storage spaces.
